Q:  What is Mid-century Modern jewelry, you ask?

A: The simple shapes of Mid-century Modernism  are enjoying a renaissance in home décor, furniture and jewelry . The design period known as the Mid-Century ranged from about 1950-1965. The 1950’s and 1960’s was a very creative time for jewelry design, artists such as Picasso, Braque, and Dali designed precious jewelry. Jewelry designers began creating stunning confections of glistening diamonds, or bold, modern looks with gemstones. https://www.nationaljeweler.com

Artists represent the heartbeat of the Fairweather Gallery.  What we strive to put out in the arts community is  the artist’s conversations.  We have been fortunate to experience the sharing and giving of many, many creative minds  for over 11 years.

 

So, for us,  in 2018, the opportunity to continue to present an arts platform forward  is all about shining a bright light on the reminder that we are all connected… artists, patrons and community.

Just in a fabulous Marco Fabroso  exclusive design by Reneé Hafeman :

Fraboso Argento’ has been making Silver Jewelry Since 1985 Where Marco Fraboso’s father, Paolo Fraboso, passed on his passion to his Son for Silver, also serving as his expert guide and mentor. Marco Fraboso officially joined the family firm when he was 20 years old and has since expanded his knowledge handed down to him by his father which has proved crucial as it forms the foundations of Marco’s creative output today.

About Reneé Hafeman jewelry designer:

 

“Growing up, my grandmother would pull out her jewelry box, take each piece out one-by-one and explain in detail what it was, where it came from and why it was so special to her. This developed my love of antique and vintage jewelry. I started to think of how many treasured pieces are sitting in drawers and jewelry boxes, many handed down, some outdated, some broken and others, just put away because they didn’t match anything you wore. I decided enough of that! Let’s dig out those pieces and give them new life. As I design, I pray over my work that whoever wears this piece, may be blessed in some way. I thank God for blessing me with this creativity and passion.”–Reneé Hafeman

Volez Voguez Voyagez – Assouline book $50

 

Book Review:

Since the company’s inception by its namesake founder more than 150 years ago and the creation of its universally recognized monogram in 1896, Louis Vuitton has expanded its borders to encompass everything from perfumes to handbags to ready-to-wear. But Louis Vuitton Malletier has always been rooted in the timeless spirit of travel. Based on the exhibition curated by Olivier Saillard at Paris’s Grand Palais, this album was created to accompany the show on its travels around the world, beginning in Japan in spring 2016. Louis Vuitton’s Volez, Voguez, Voyagez gives readers an understanding of the history and vision of the brand whose innovation made traveling effortless as well as fashionable. From the flat trunk perfected by Louis Vuitton himself to the present direction of Nicolas Ghesquière, a piece of Vuitton luggage has always been the quintessential tool in the jet-set traveler’s arsenal. For almost two centuries, practicality and whimsy have famously fused to influence the brand’s every endeavor. The pages of Volez, Voguez, Voyagez are an expedition within themselves, reflecting the wanderlust that Louis Vuitton inspires every day.

 

And, too, a personal favorite! A blue Chanel pendant necklace must have!
